FREE Registration and Certification of your Animal!


We realize at D.I.A.L. S.T.A.R.T., Inc. that you may want to or feel required to have a ”piece of paper” to show someone who questions your right to have a service animal. Even though the law clearly states that disabled people do not have to show any paper work regarding their disability or to prove that their animal is a service animal, we notice there are groups on the Internet who charge disabled people money to “register” or “certify” them and their animal.

This saddens us, as we have never charged for this FREE service.

As part of our pro bono program, we offer you a FREE “certification.”

We are not here to make money off the people we are pledged to serve.

There is no such thing as a required legally governed “certifying” or “registering” agency or document to carry with you.

You are not required to join or become a member of any group or web site in order to “feel safe” about having your service animal. Your legal rights are already spelled out under the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act). We suggest you print out the ADA page and use it as an educational/teaching brochure to hand out to people who are interested in what service animals do, and how they differ from “pets.”

For years D.I.A.L. S.T.A.R.T., Inc. has provided FREE forms for our clients, because we know these forms can be acquired FREE from the town or county agency where your animal is licensed. You do not need to pay for anything except for the notary’s seal when they witness your signature.

You can have the paper work you want simply by printing out the form below, filling it in, and signing it in front of a notary public for $5.

We also suggest you print out the form, fill it in clearly, sign it in front of a notary public, place a photo of your animal with it (you can laminate it) and carry it with you and your animal.
If you want to be part of the D.I.A.L. S.T.A.R.T. registry data base, fill out the form and click submit. Your information will be saved. Your submission gives us permission to verify that you have registered your animal with D.I.A.L. S.T.A.R.T.,Inc., the original Service Animal Rights advocacy organization. This is a FREE service! Spread the word!
